Former chief master sergeants of the Air Force shared experiences and challenges they faced in their careers during the 2014 Air Force Association Air & Space Conference here, Sept. 17.

Chief McCoy is the sixth CMSAF who, during his career, served at Clark Air Base, Philippines, as the base training NCO. During the Taiwan crisis of August 1958 he was instrumental in establishing and operating the wing command post which coordinated all inbound combined Air Strike Force aircraft.

Chief Finch is the 13th CMSAF and has a background in missile maintenance and professional military education, having served in a number of operational, maintenance and support units at every level of command, from squadron through major air command.

Chief Murray is the 14th CMSAF whose background includes various duties in aircraft maintenance, and experience as command chief master sergeant at wing, numbered air force and major command levels.

The CMSAF serves at the highest level of leadership for the Air Force, provides direction for the enlisted force and represents the Airmen’s interests to the American public and to all levels of government.
